    Croquet, Crumpets and Cakes!

    We bought this croquet set for my daughter's vintage tea party. All of the children loved the game and played all morning! We have already had great use out of the set and plan to play again and again!
    We live out of the country and my husband brought this back for me when he visited the States. I was a little nervous because I figured I with such a low price and a low shipping weight it was going to be a piece of junk, but I was pleasantly surprised! It's a nice set, for just right for playing in the yard now and then. I like the colors too - somehow having aqua and pink balls makes me smile.

    get what you pay for

    This set isn't what I was hoping for after I read all the glowing reports, but it's about what you would expect for the price after looking at all the other sets in the $100 range. This set is good enough for what I bought it for but if you're looking for a quality set that you will use a lot, this isn't the set. Really, the only complaint I have is the set is a little on the small size. The handles are short and thin, the mallets are rather small and the little posts with all the colors aren't much bigger around than a pencil---well maybe a little :o) The wickets and balls seem fine. So for an inexpensive, use sometime set---this will work fine. I'm going to say I would recommend this to a friend but I would tell them what I just posted.

    Buyer Beware

    A friend and I played a single game on probably what was not the best croquet grass in the world. By the end of the game I had put a dent in the ball and the mallet head plastic cap was busted along with portions of the mallet head itself. My friend's mallet plastic cap was also busted in although not as bad as mine. I believe that the less than ideal conditions only sped up what would have soon happened anyway. I read bad reviews and hoped they were wrong, but they were all too correct.

    Very pleased with this set!

    Haven't played croquet since I was a kid. Purchased the set so my grandsons could play when they come over. We played yesterday (3 adults & 2 kids aged 4 & 5). The adults all thought the set was very sturdy, the mallets were not too heavy for the kids, and we all appreciated the different colored mallets to help everyone hit the right balls. We had no trouble putting the mallets together (a couple people had complained about that). Loved the carrying case!

    Meh.

    Not so fabulous. I only gave it three stars because I received it SOO quickly (that sort of customer service IS outstanding). The set itself was pretty cheap though - paint chipped, splintering, wrong colors: I had to paint one of the mallets pink (to match the pink ball) as I received two yellow mallets but only one yellow ball. NOT great quality but I suppose that's what one might expect for the price? Remember when things were made well??

    Yes, the mallets are small

    If you're wondering, yes, the mallets feel too small for a regular sized adult (5'10" male). If you are small, or naturally hunched, this may work well; for the rest, get ready for hours of fun, family back-strain. I bought this looking for the indestructible, normal sized croquet set of days gone by, but sadly this set doesn't fit the bill. It's unfortunate that the buy-in to see if you'll enjoy the game is so much for something better.

    poor quality

    This product is extremely poor quality. Right out of the box, brand new, the balls have numerous cracks running through them and I will not be surprised if hunks break out on the balls. The plastic striking ends of the mallets are poor fitting and do not appear able to last many hits before failing. There are workmanship flaws throughout the set, some minor some that could affect play.

    Had less than a year & already breaking!

    My family uses this product at family events. After 1 year of use, the product is already starting to break! The rubber is coming off the mallets. The balls are starting to chip. We didn't think we needed a high dollar product when just playing for recreation, but I thought this would last a lot longer than 1 year. I feel like I already need to buy another set!

    Great gift!

    I purchased this set as part of a wedding gift for a couple where the bride had children and the groom did not. I thought this would be a great gift for the couple to use for "new family" bonding. They really liked it and thought it was a great idea.
